White Starter Fertilizer Placement Tube for 9000 Series

This simple yet effective design is for the 9000 Series White planter. It is totally protected by the disc blades, so rocks should not be an issue. The 1/8" wall 3/8" stainless steel tube will easily outlast the disc scraper. The optional seed bounce flap closes the opening between the disc openers assuring correct seed placement by eliminating seed bounce and ricochet.

Key Benefits:

  • Starter Fertilizer appliation deeper in the soil profile
  • Instant root uptake for early plant health
  • Maintenance free

 

 

Installation Instructions:

  1. Install plastic tubing (provided) into bottom side (where the guard is welded) of stainless steel tube. Leave approximately 1/4" to 3/16" of the plastic tubing sticking out of the stainless steel tube. You may need to cut off the plastic tubing at this point, as more than enough plastic tubing is provided.
  2. Remove depth gauge wheels and discs, taking note of shim placement.
  3. Remove factory seed tube guard.
  4. Lift TT-290 up into position on row unit.
  5. Align roll pin holes and install roll pins, making sure the tab welded to the side of the fertilizer tube fits snug up against the side of the row unit. (You may need to bend this tab to make sure it fits snug, in case it gets bent in shipping.)
  6. Re-install disc openers taking care to get the correct shim placement.
  7. Re-install depth gauge wheels.

 

Recommend replacing disc openers when you put our fertilizer tubes on.
